Major Katie Lunning To Speak At The Trailblazers Luncheon May 11

  • Saturday, February 24, 2024

Major Katie Lunning will be the keynote speaker at the Trailblazers Luncheon on Saturday, May 11, at the Walden Club. The theme this year is "Honoring Warrior Moms." 

Major Lunning earned the Military Times' 2023 Airman of the Year award after the Air Guard nurse walked alongside Taliban to rescue patients from Kabul. Her calm and skill under pressure ensured 22 patients survived the suicide bombing at Hamid Karzai International Airport in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan — and more than a dozen others in the days before. Kabul fell to the Taliban on Aug. 15 and Major Lunning’s team arrived at the capital’s Hamid Karzai International Airport three days later.

Major Lunning will tell the story of how her small critical care team went into Kabul to get out our allies and then had to save Marines after the bombing of the airport. 

The event also includes shopping boutiques and music by Grammy nominated Steve Dean and Minnie Murphy. There will be raffles and a silent auction. Proceeds will go to Creative Arts Therapy for female veterans.

Doors will open at 10:30 a.m. and lunch will be served at 11:30 a.m.
